A knitter wrote to me, proclaiming that after she knit one of my Fair Isle / Norwegian patterns that featured a simple, symmetrical motif, without any shaping, she was officially "nuts" about stranded knitting and hoped I'd come up with a "next step" hat design. I answered her request with this Macadamia Hat, which has a unique motif, to advance her chart-reading skills a bit, yet simple shaping, separate from the chart work, to keep things easy.
I hope you enjoy it!

Hi! My name is Mary Ann Stephens. My mother taught me how to knit when I was 5. I've always loved knitting, but I never became madly obsessed with it until I made a little Norwegian sweater while expecting my first son. After my third son was born, rather than return to my very family-UNfriendly Wall St. career, I started Kidsknits.com, which specializes in Norwegian and Fair Isle knitting. If you ever need to contact me with any questions, you can reach me through my retail website, Kidsknits.com, or my blog, twostrands.wordpress.come, PM me through Ravelry (I'm "twostrands") or email me directly at mas AT kidsknits DOT com.
Thanks for visiting and happy knitting!
